2018 Subaru Crosstrek Research

 2018 Subaru Crosstrek


The Subaru Crosstrek has been been a big-seller for the manufacturer for many years, mainly thanks to its smooth and impressive handling. It returns in 2018 with a sportier exterior and more spacious interior. If you're after a reliable compact crossover that's fun to drive and is a comfortable ride, this vehicle ticks all the boxes.

Choose Between Manual and Automatic

All three trims are powered by a 2-liter 152-horsepower flat-four engine. You can choose to pair this with a either a six-speed manual gearing system or a CVT automatic system. You'll get up to 23 miles per gallon driving in the city, and up to 29 mpg driving on the freeway. That's impressive for a vehicle of this size.

Improved Handling

The new 2018 Subaru global platform appears on the Crosstrek. This platform is 70% more rigid than previous models and this is apparent when you notice the stability and agility of this vehicle.  The 8.7-inch road clearance is a notable feature of the vehicle, which off-roaders will appreciate.


The excellent outward visibility, which has been a staple of the Crosstrek for some time, has been enhanced due to a widening of the vehicle. There's an extra 1.1 inches in the front and 1.3 inches in the rear. This has allowed the manufacturers to place the seats further apart giving drivers and passengers extra waist-room. There's an extra 1.1 inches of legroom for back-seat passengers as well.



The array of features is a definite highlight for Crosstrek drivers to enjoy. A 6.5-inch touch-screen infotainment setup comes as standard, as does Bluetooth connectivity and a rearview camera. The availability of features is dependent on the trim you choose.  Here are the key features available in the top Limited trim:

     Heated front seats

     Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability
